Another christmas kid installment from the Berenstain's. My children enjoy these books. This book discusses the cubs making their LONG wish lists and how they figure out that being greedy isnt such a good thing.
The Berenstain Bears Meet Santa Bear (First Time Books) Nov 29, 2008
ISBN 0394968808 - Another Christmas book that starts right around Thanksgiving, a small negative in my opinion, but I admit to laughing out loud that Mama Bear agreed with me on the first page, saying "It seems to me that the Christmas season starts earlier every year." I'm reading my way through piles of Christmas books right now and was happy to find the Berenstain Bears in the pile.
Two days after Thanksgiving, the Bear family - like so many others - hits the mall. The children, in response to too many TV toy commercials, seem nearly giddy and beg to be able to return when Santa Bear visits the mall. At home, they make their lists; Brother's is short and neat, but Sister's is long and messy and, worse, makes her appear very greedy. Brother explains to her why this is wrong and she re-writes it before the big day arrives. The family visits Santa, shops and prepares for the holiday and Papa Bear is there to answer Sister's questions about Santa - and to teach her that Santa has the best job in the world, because Christmas is all about the joy of giving, a lesson that is confirmed for her on Christmas morning.
With a simple story teaching more than one nice message, the Berenstains manage to tell a Christmas tale without relying on the re-telling of a Christmas classic; this is a great thing, in my opinion, because there really are just so many tellings of the classics that any one parent can stand. The text is fairly simple, appropriate for the 4-8 age group, and the illustrations are standard Berenstains, bright and colorful with lots of cute little "bear" details in them. Little ones won't even realize that they're learning.
